PADS is trying to tell you something:

OK, I am assuming you have taken the "well, it's the silkscreen layer, right?" arguement and have decided to place the outline and ref des on the silkscreen layer rather than layer 1
that's fine, except IMO, it is not as efficient, to each their own I guess.
what you have to do is uncheck the "keep attributes" dialogue box because if you look closely the label (ref des) is actually an attribute
